Getting used to this new fall schedule has been surprisingly easy but very different. Kylie is gone from around 8-4 every day and man oh man do I miss that little spit fire.
Her bus is supposed to come at 8 AM every morning but it actually comes at various times something between 8:06 or my personal favorite 8:26 exactly ten minutes before school starts. Nice. So we spend this unknown time waiting for the bus running, yelling at the recycling guys and laughing. I never thought so early in the morning could be so not terrible. Because lets be honest here I am not a morning person but I find my self really enjoying these times.
See also the conversations had at said bus stop hangs.
Kylie: Why do they call it concrete? I mean why not call it brown top? Like Black top? That would be better.
Me: I don't know Kylie...
Kylie: Well I do. I am after all in Kindergarten.
Kylie: Mommy why are you in your Pajamas? Its kinda embarrassing.
All the while Alexia exclaims "I go to SCHOOL!" long after the buses departure. And no matter how many times I try to explain that potty is essential for her to go, she just keeps saying the same thing over and over again. "No I go to school NOW!"
Kylie has taken to saying "You know what I'm sayin?" ALL the TIME.
Kylie: I just figured if I didn't touch anything yucky why wash my hands you know what I'm sayin?
Kylie: Don't pack me peanut butter sandwiches any more because than I have to sit with the boys at the peanut butter table and they eat like animals, you know what I'm sayin mommy?
Me: Um...... you dont like anything but peanut butter or ham sandwiches.
Kylie: I know that's gonna be a problem if you know what I'm sayin.
Overall I find these early crisp fall mornings to be pretty enjoyable. Well for the most part. Aside from the hours between 6 -8am where I feel like a drill Sargent you know what I'm sayin? (see what I did there?) IE Kylie eat your breakfast, Kylie get dressed. No Kylie that's on backwards. Kylie brush your teeth. KYLIE What are you doing? We have a bus to catch. Ah you get the idea.
TGIF? No really the hubs has off tomorrow and were going to a wedding sans children. I don't even care that its supposed to be torrential down pour and cold and the whole wedding is out doors. I get to spend more then a two hours alone with my husband. Plus alcohol. Yep TGIF
